Fast Trax Super SlideThe single most important aspect in our operation is SAFETY.

Talley Amusements has an excellent safety record. These records are attained through an aggressive preventive maintenance program for all equipment and extensive training of operating personnel. The maintenance program requires that all equipment be restored to manufacture's specifications before the beginning of each season. This includes the inspection of structural integrity through the use of x-ray and sonic testing equipment. These state of the art techniques assure that structural failure is virtually eliminated. Regular repair and rigid maintenance procedures are employed to maximize ride use and efficiency. This policy not only creates inventory of equipment that has a detailed inspection and replacement program which prevents mechanical failure, but also ensures operating dependability during the critical time of the season. A detailed inspection of all rides is conducted during the set-up and dismantling at each location. This inspection, plus a daily inspection requirement has created an outstanding SAFETY record for Talley Amusements.

Employees are required to attend group meetings several times during each fair to review and emphasize safety features and procedures, as well as detailed emergency and evacuation diagrams.

Electrical generators power all riding devices, games and food concessions. Electrical cable connections are made with CamLock connectors and industrial rubber cable covers are used throughout each site.
